1897 was the year that Flynn prince decided to bring together a crew composed of several old friends and few new allies. Prior to 1897, he used to serve as a captain in the U.S Army where he suffered an injury to his left shoulder and lost feeling in the arm which ensured he was sent home with an honorary medal. He struggled to find a job when he returned home due to the injury and economic turmoil so he relied on some old friends to offer work where possible, this was ongoing until a few associates he knew from the army approached him with a job offer. He accepted the offer and left with them to Mexico where they proceeded to rob several small towns which was not part of the initial offer, he was resilient to commit such acts and planned to return to the U.S immediately but before he could leave he witnessed a robbery go wrong and a shootout started against some of the local bandits.
The fight that ensured was over in an instant with all the bandits dead and one of the kills belonged to Flynn, afterwards he was determined to leave so he took a share of the money and got on a horse, this was when unfortunately his associates noticed him leaving town and pulled to revolvers on him. It was then that one of the bandits from the attack shot both of them dead and pointed to Flynn, he had survived the shootout earlier and was content on getting revenge on his fallen bandit brothers. Flynn explained his side of the story at gunpoint and the bandit whose name was Javier Escuella decided to let him go on the condition he kept all the stolen cash and that Flynn was not to cross the border again.
Having just arrived back in the U.S, Flynn was faced by a squad of U.S rangers who were expecting his associates at the bridge, they assumed the worst and opened fire on Flynn as he ran toward close cover. He managed to down one ranger before he ran out of ammo in his pistol, they were closing in when suddenly a train passed over the bridge and between him and them. He wasted no time and jumped aboard into a cargo car, not far behind the remaining four rangers jump on the several cars behind and what followed was an intense melee fight. When the train arrived at the next station only Flynn made it off with bloody fists and a gunshot wound, he needed to find a doctor and fast.
It was at the town of Thieves Landing where he met a Doctor by the name of Lance Howard who offered to patch him up out of courtesy, with no certain future and broke, Flynn offered his services to the doctor in exchange for shelter, food and coin. For the following seven months they worked together and formed a strong friendship, it was then that a military battalion entered Thieves Landing on a routine scout however among the soldiers was a ranger who had survived the fight with Flynn and immediately recognised him. The following day several soldiers stormed the house where he was living, many shots were fired and Flynn ran to the nearest boat with the doctor and barely escaped. They were sailing across to New Hanover when Flynn noticed the doctor bleeding, before he could do or say anything Lance was dead. On the boat he found a weapons cache which he would soon put to much use because waiting for him on the shore was the surviving ranger and several other soldiers which appeared to be arguing with the ranger about the operation.
The boat hit the shore and the soldiers all peered inside to find only the dead doctor, Flynn had jumped out and swam with his guns above the water to the nearby shrubs where he attacked all the soldiers by surprise, he had killed all but one who fled using his very boat which would later result in Flynn being a wanted man for life! He accepted his fate and he would soon after create a crew called The Indigo Princes which rob, attack and expel the U.S army and other government bodies.
The year is now 1899 and not much is known about the whereabouts or recent deeds of Flynn or The Indigo Princes but rumour has it intend on scaling up their operations across the west.
